Thanks Ruwan this is actually the shot that was taken, obviously edited slightly but not a composite. Just happened to be a really clear night on the island tonight!!

This is outstanding. I've always wanted to capture the milky way but I live in Arkansas and the skies are not always clear enough. LOVE it!

What is funny McKenzeLoch is I actually live in Arkansas too! I did live on Kauai for three years though. You don't have a lot of great places around here to get good night skies. I think the darkest sky area in Arkansas is in Ponca and it is very foresty and hard to get lines of sight. You would probably be best off sneaking over to Oklahoma since they have lots of wide open spaces with not much light pollution.
